Just what it says, behind the mike
Fascinating if you're into old time radio or just curious about what happened behind the scenes of broadcasting circa 1941. It's sort of a variety show, hosted by Ed Wynn's always-giggling announcer Graham McNamee. They bring on legitimate non-actors (some of them sound truly awful) from all corners of the business, asking scripted questions and performing demonstrations or skits. I haven't listened to every episode yet, but what I've heard is entertaining and informative. An episode title indicates one topic covered in a specific program.
